1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

We will work to raise staff awareness of dementia and we will use our specialist skills and expertise to provide information to people on the legal issues surrounding loss of capacity and the importance of planning for the future. We will also ensure that staff interpret the Law Society Client Capacity Guidelines in a manner which is appropriate when dealing with clients with dementia.

 

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Limited time available.
